Potatoes Turn Purple

purple potatoWe’re not too sure whether this is something really cool or just plain weird! Potato growers up in Scotland have produced Britain’s first ever fully purple potato! And it’s not just purple on the outside – it is purple through and through!

The new potato, called Purple Majesty, goes on sale at Sainsbury’s this week and it is said that these potatoes are healthier than their pale companions. This is due to containing antioxidants, which are said by some to be good for your blood vessels.

This is undoubtedly a breakthrough for the colour purple, as soon we may well be having purple chips, purple mash and purple waffles!
